If you want to get stabbed with a knitting needle, interrupt a knitter while she (he) is counting stitches or otherwise looking perfectly happy and ask them if what they're doing is hard.
No. It's not fucking hard. I'm knitting 1x1 rib while riding the bus. If it were hard I wouldn't be doing it at all. Small children in agricultural communities learn to knit socks at a very early age so they don't freeze to death while watching the sheep. It's most definitely not hard.
And piss off. I've got a headache.
